It seems to be a perpetual challenge to find a good work space, when you can’t afford to rent an office or even a co-worker space (which doesn’t work for me anyway).
In our 2-room apartment the work desk is in a corner of a room of about 20 sq meters – also used for eating, playing, watching telly, books and a couch.… Read more
Continued from yesterday’s post …
Let’s take a look at the next category of my current customers and see if they would be a good fit for a product, like an e-course.
Which teaches them to prioritize, find their way in the WordPress jungle. And marketing online. And all that other jazz.… Read more
I’d like to start finally doing a product for my webdesign business, so I can earn some recurring revenue that is NOT coming from the sale of an hour – or several – of my life.
I figure I would like to do a web-course about pretty much everything you need to know to set up your own WordPress website or WooCommerce webshop if you are a small business.… Read more
One month after end of paternity leave and I’ve earned about 500 USD on web-stuff. Needless to say, Char is worried.
And my credit is counting down again.
I don’t think there is much to say anymore about this. The only thing tenable is to dig up a part time job ASAP, anything tolerable.… Read more
Jay slept early so I should have used the evening for creativity. Instead I blundered into reading about the new data regulation in Europe and wondering whether or not and how I could live up to it.
Or else be fined and face hell and high water, because, you know, I’m like such a Big Fish.… Read more
Just listened to a video-cast from http://mattreport.com/ about “working for free” and I feel like sharing my comment for that video here.
It really is a deeply relevant discussion for any small business owner or freelancer.
So here …
Today a customer (CEO in a minor company) phoned me after I had done some website-work for him.… Read more
I have for some time now been dabbling with an English/international website for my WordPress consultancy business (a new-ish term, I’m sometimes not really sure what to call myself … ).
Okay, so screw it.
I bought the domain name and figured I’d do a rough version in English of WordPress theme reviews, and then a more compressed version in my local language.… Read more
With regard to being self-employed I’ve discovered one thing: It is much harder to get started than get going once you are in.
Because once you get those first few people to pay you money for a job well done, your confidence automatically rises. And suddenly options don’t seem so limited anymore.… Read more
I don’t think I need to recount either my frustrations with trying to find a type of product for my webdesign business so I could earn more passive income, or at least more predictable, automated income – once everything was developed, tested and setup of course. Oh, and once I had some traffic.… Read more
Only had a little work for a returning client this morning, so I spent some of the remaining work time thinking seriously about the future – even though that was mildly angst-inducing.
Char was out with Jay and so I was at home at the ‘office’ (my desk) while the workers upstairs rummaged around, and I had to take a few walks to get peace and quiet.… Read more
News is the same shit … what can you do about the world, except feel more and more outraged? Better to read it very briefly to see if anything really important has come up that affects you, or might, and then read some research or in-depth articles about an issue, such as a particular political issue.… Read more
We went back to our apartment in the City for two days to wash some clothes and get some things in order – you know, normal lives while waiting for my mother’s operation for breast cancer and for me to earn some money before the coffers are empty.
Okay, that was morose.… Read more
In line with my previous resolution that I should really, really try to keep weekends completely off – no matter the pressure – I tried just that today. And I was close to blowing it.
I had decided I wanted to promote the live-talk about Robinson, which I’m still confident I can have ready in January as announced on that website.… Read more
Mostly all-work day but for a new, bigger client who actually has a product with ideals – creative play-guides for children and their parents.
I guess Not-So-Big-Anymore Photographer Client had ideals, as well, on the surface – like getting some memorable photos of the world for the rest of the world to see.… Read more
